Choco - Tofu Cake

Often, I receive mails to post Veggie (egg less) Cakes. Though the Egg substitutes had been given on the Tips and Tricks page, I know it’s not 100% perfect.

In order to give perfect (100%) egg less cake, in terms of texture, taste, I strongly recommend Choco-Tofu cake.  I got this wonderful recipe from here. I am sure, all my veggie friends are happy now.

Ingredients :   1/2 cup of pureed tofu     ;        1 ¼ cup of all purpose flour     ;      1/2 cup of sugar        ;       1/4 cup of coco powder     ;        1/4 cup of milk    ;       125 gms of butter         ;         2 tsp of baking soda       ;         1/4 tsp of baking powder        ;         1/4 tsp of salt        ;           1/2 tsp of vanilla essence. 

Beat the pureed tofu along with 1/8 cups of milk until you see air bubbles and set aside.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Once, again sift them to make sure the mixture is even.

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla essence and beat well. Add the tofu mixture into butter-sugar mixture and beat well till it has been incorporated.

Now, add the sifted flour mixture to the butter-tofu mixture little by little and beat well till it combines well.  Add the remaining (1/8 cups)  of  milk to achieve a batter of dropping consistency.

Pour batter into the prepared loaf tin, and in oven for 180°c and bake  for 30 minutes or till done.

Allow it cool. It goes very well with Tea or coffee. But, I just crumbled the cake on top of Vanilla ice cream scope. Imm…….Its Divine.
